Science Centre NEMO
NEMO is the largest science centre in the Netherlands; an educational attraction where visitors can discover the world of science and technology in an entertaining way. Even though the term ‘science center’ is not yet very established in the Netherlands, around 500,000 people visit the green building above the IJ Tunnel in Amsterdam every year. With five floors full of exciting things to do and discover, it is the perfect place for anyone with an inquiring mind. Everything in NEMO is connected to science and technology. Exhibitions, theatre performances, films, workshops and demonstrations. For school children, NEMO is the largest interactive non-classroom-based learning environment and an essential part of any course about science and technology.
The Science Learning Center is a center of expertise with regard to science and technology education. The emphasis is on informal (out-of-school) learning and how this can be integrated in the formal (in-school) learning. Also expertise is being developed on how children learn.
One of the spearheads of the center of expertise is knowledge development in cooperation with universities and by continually innovating ourselves. The developed knowledge is to be shared actively, internally as well as externally.
